Trump Tweets: Robert Mueller has conflict of interest

US President Donald Trump urged US Special Counsel Robert Mueller to admit conflict of interest in the investigation of Russia's alleged meddling in US elections, led by Mueller.

Giuliani told CNN's "New Day" on Monday that Mueller's team had been unresponsive to their recommendations for an interview between Mueller and the President for 10 days, adding that he believed the Mueller team is "in bad faith about an interview at this point".

After Mueller's appointment by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, a Trump appointee, the Department of Justice determined there was not an ethics conflict for Mueller in the investigation.

Mueller's office declined to comment on Giuliani's remarks, according to USA Today.

Giuliani said he had no firsthand knowledge of Mueller's plans, but he expected the special counsel to file something by September 1, two months before the midterm elections. "But there's no violation of law, statute, rule or regulation that we have seen after reviewing this case for a year, and I think Bob Mueller will come to the same conclusion".

Giuliani also reiterated in the Fox interview that the president is "absolutely innocent" and that recently released taped conversations between Trump and his former lawyer Michael Cohen from before the election prove that the president "didn't do anything wrong".

Trump, who has long complained about the criminal probe into his White House victory, said the idea that his campaign worked with Moscow was a "Total Hoax" in a series of tweets aimed at undermining the integrity of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

"Also, why is Mueller only appointing Angry Dems, some of whom have worked for Crooked Hillary, others, including himself, have worked for Obama.And why isn't Mueller looking at all of the criminal activity & real Russian Collusion on the Democrats side-Podesta, Dossier?"

He also said the charges against Manafort have nothing to do with Russian Federation collusion.

"You've forfeited your law license, as far as I'm concerned", Giuliani said. Mueller's team is looking into whether Trump sought to undermine the Russian Federation investigation by firing FBI Director James Comey and attacking Justice Department officials such as Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller.

"Nobody should proceed on the assumption that President Trump's going to pardon".

United States intelligence agencies concluded in 2017 that Moscow meddled in the 2016 presidential campaign to try to tip the vote in Trump's favour.

"There is No Collusion!" "Therefore, the witch hunt is an illegal scam", Mr Trump said.
